Happy Retirement Ronnie!
Today, 5th April is the start of the Easter holidays, but also the day PPS says a fond farewell to Ronnie Golightly, school janitor and friend to all the pupils.
He’ll be sorely missed by the PPS family of children, staff and parents / carers, but we all wish Ronnie a wonderful retirement, doing things he loves and with family and friends.
Song for Ronnie
Pupils, parents and staff shared their love and appreciation with cards and gifts and song.

The Scottish Parent Teaching Council – which Pencaitland PS is a member of – has re-branded.
The new name reflects the growth and the direction of partnerships between parents and carers, pupils, school staff and local authorities / education in Scottish Government.
At Connect we strive to make parental involvement in Scottish education as good as it can be. We do this by working with parents and educators. We provide information, advice and training, all focussed on parental engagement in children’s learning. Sign up for our eNewsletters here and Parents’ Voice survey group here. Connect is a trading name of Scottish Parent Teacher Council, a Scottish charity funded mostly by membership.
A new post under Consultations – Having Your Say, is looking for the views of parents and carers to be shared to Scottish Government re National Improvement Framework.
Find it here under heading of NPFS.
